Luke’s story

Luke* was just 3 years old when his Mummy was killed in a tragic accident.

His disabled Daddy, plunged into shock and grief, struggled to cope with the loss of his beloved wife and his mental health rapidly deteriorated. Luke’s dad didn’t know how he was going to cope.

With the vital support of Home-Start, Luke and his dad were able to make positive moves forward. Whilst Luke will never fully get over the death of his Mummy, his situation has greatly improved and he has a brighter future ahead
